The contents are organized chronologically in 16 chapters, from “Roots of the Holocaust” through “The Pursuit of Justice.” A day-by-day time line appears on the bottom of each page, while the rest of the text combines images drawn from archives from around the world with textual explanations. Special sections, highlighted in yellow, often deal with the most controversial of issues, such as the role of the Vatican.
